Fort Worth ISD Gets Digitally Connected

Parents, students and teachers in Fort Worth ISD can now stay digitally connected with the district and its schools. The district has launched a new free mobile app for smartphones.

With just a few clicks, app users can get all of the latest district information and keep up with a student’s grades or lunch money accounts.

District Spokesman Clint Bond said the district partnered with its mass communications vendor, ParentLink, to create the app, which is available in 70 different languages.

Other school districts have also recently added their own mobile apps, including DISD, Mckinney ISD and Coppell ISD.
